I wonder since OIKODMHN EK QEOU is AIWNION EN TOIS OURANOIS if the opposite
view could not be construed. AIWNION is like God, eternal, without
beginning or end, so it would have to be there already, maybe the EK QEOU
gives us an idea of its working, coming from or out of God, it is therefore
eternal with him. The AIWNION part leans me toward Scott.
